Wishing you and yours
a stereotype-free 2014!!!!
Your gift? The voice
of Speedy Gonzales, Mel Blanc,
crooning a navidad classic,
"The Hat I Got for Christmas is too Big."*
*note: the bizarre lyrics of the
song merely confirm the argument
in Tex[t]-Mex regarding "Mexicans"
as synecdoche for a sordid sort
of sexual potentiality--but I will
hold this comment in reserve
for the rest of the holidays.
